I'm new to the BlackBerry development world and am confused about some things. I'm trying to develop an app using Sencha Touch 2 but I need it to have Push Notifications. I understand this is something that can be done through the WebWorks API but I was under the impression that you could either use the WebWorks framework or Sencha Touch 2 framework; they were mutually exclusive.
I recently read a forum post that would seem to contradict this, somebody had integrated features from the WebWorks API into their Sencha Touch 2 project. Could somebody give me a quick idea of how exactly you do this?

Look at WebWorks like an extra set of APIs you can use to build apps that require access to the hardware or the BlackBerry services.
So you build your app in Sencha Touch and whenever you need to have access to something specific to the device, you simply make calls from within your app, just like you would call a Sencha Touch method.
It's similar to how you would add external libraries to a Sencha Touch app, because the SDK doesn't provide a component that you need.
